Wedding Bell Blues by Ann Roth

Title: Wedding Bell Blues
Series: Dunlin Shores Series #2
Author: Ann Roth
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2019


Every detail of the wedding was planned… Except romance

When events planner Cammie Yarnell agrees to do a wedding at the Oceanside Bed and Breakfast, she knows the tough part will be keeping a smile on her face. Not too long ago she’d planned a walk down the aisle at the sumptuous B and B herself—and called it off. Worse, she’s working this event with Finn Brannigan, the photographer who knew all about her fiancĂ©’s cheating and kept it a secret, betraying her trust as a friend.


Yet her anger starts to fade once the showers and dinner parties bring her closer to Finn. Now his misguided belief that he’s bad for her is standing in the way of Cammie’s trip to the altar—with him. 







“You’re not gonna like this.” Kelly fiddled with her coffee mug, then dropped her bomb. “Daddy has hired Finn Brannigan to photograph everything.” Finn Brannigan. The very name grated against Cammie’s nerves, and under the table her foot tapped rapidly on the black-and-white linoleum. The despicable man, whom she’d once considered a close friend and had often worked with, was responsible for introducing her to Todd. Finn had watched her fall in love, never once bothering to mention that Todd was a liar and a cheat. She’d discovered the ugly fact herself, the morning after the bachelor party. Some friend Finn Brannigan had turned out to be. She narrowed her eyes. “I don’t work with him anymore.” “I know, and I tried to change Daddy’s mind, but he says Finn’s the best and he won’t settle for anyone else. He also says you two were the best event planner– photographer team on the west coast, and it’s time you moved past your personal problems and worked together again.” “Well, your daddy is wrong.” Cammie relied on other photographers now. She avoided Finn and limited what she said to him when they ran into each other. Which, given that the population of Dunlin Shores was only 2,274, happened regularly. Kelly’s face fell. “Then you won’t plan my wedding?” She looked up to Cammie, and Cammie considered her family. She couldn’t let her down. Besides, she and Finn were both professionals able to separate business from their personal lives. As long as she remembered that, she could survive working with him again. Just this once. “If you were anyone else… But I love you dearly. I’ll do it.” Kelly exhaled a loud breath. “Thank you.” That settled, Cammie uncapped the Waterman’s. “Let’s do some planning.”

When my
feet hit the dirt at the Big Sky Dude Ranch, I have a pretty good idea what to
expect.  What happens next nearly shakes me out of my brand-new cowboy
boots.  See, I’m here to write a travel article, but in one instant my
interest in saddles, horses, and the Montana sky evaporate.  All I see are
blue eyes, chiseled cheekbones, and a black cowboy hat.

What I find
out, is the quiet cowboy who owns this land is the measure of alpha.
Quiet. Controlled.  He’s older but has a body carved from fresh air and
decades of hard work.

I do what I
can to maintain my professionalism.  After all, for two days he’s barely
looked my way.  And yet, he’s ruined every pair of panties I brought.

One slip
and everything changes. Garrett West shows me what’s underneath that calm
cowboy exterior.  And, let me tell you, it’s big.

Except, we
are from different worlds.  Different decades.  And some differences
may be impossible to overcome.

Author’s
Note:  Saddle up for a ride that will leave you weak in the knees.
This May-December pair do their best to maintain some distance, but once they
are forced to touch, the sky opens and worlds collide in the hottest sort of
way.  Always safe, no cheating, and love at the speed of light.

Author Bio



Dani Wyatt used to feel bad about having such dirty
thoughts. Luckily, one day she decided to start writing them down. Her uber
alpha heros have a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Her
heroines are intelligent, quirky and worry about having too much muffin top.
With her books, you can count on a heaping helping of HOT, a dash of rough and
always a happily ever after.



When she's not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some
irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The
Walking Dead can't have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at
some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

A
crystal ball assures existence, but when separated from its divine setting many
years ago, its waning vigor generates panic; various worlds will cease to
subsist if not found in time.

The
search intensifies as witches and mortals together strive to elude the
obstructions of specters, including a demon, in their expeditious intent to
exclude the probability of perpetual darkness.




Excerpt


       Rena faced the doors of Whilom
Elementary once again. She stared at the crevices she had never taken notice of
all those years walking toward them. There was no reason to turn back; it was
only an urge. Just as she was about to turn away, she gazed downwards, slowly;
one door was ajar.

‘She
probably didn’t leave yet,’ she thought because the door was slightly open.

Although
Ms. Biddock’s reaction frightened Rena, she understood the reason for her
terrifying behavior: it must have been humiliating for her watching her
colleagues walk away without offering to help her off the floor.

“Hmm,”
she murmured, scratching her chin, contemplating about whether to shut the
door. "Maybe Ms. Biddock has cooled down and will offer her apologizes to
me.”

She
was eager to give Ms. Biddock the opportunity to do so. With each passing
minute, which had only been about three, since the time of the “closing of the
door,” she decided to take that chance.

“Hello?
Hello?” She peeked, bug-eyed, tentatively pushing the doors ajar. “Can anyone
hear me?”

Sunlight
had shone through the old classroom windows; its rays beamed vibrantly through
the unclosed entries, and into the deserted hallways.

She
walked inside and stopped at the corner of the hallway that led to Ms. Biddock’s
office. The entrance was welcoming; the light was on, an indication that she
was still there. Rena proceeded, soundlessly, until a distant voice was
perceived, mumbling; she believed it to be that of the principal … Ms. Biddock.

"Maybe
the teachers came back,” Rena whispered under her breath. “She can’t be talking
to herself.”

“I’ve
used many words to describe what I seek! I’ve searched for passages until blood
showed on my feet!”

Rena
stopped; her eyes grew larger; she looked to her left and then to her right.

“Or—maybe
I was wrong.” She remained still, and then the bellowing chant had startled her
yet again.

“I
have asked repeatedly, help with my finding, the place where these memories and
I were residing!”

Darkness
rapidly supplanted the sun’s warm rays right before a storm produced
instantaneously. Ear-piercing thunder resonated within the school building, consolidated
with twisting winds that had abruptly slammed all the doors shut. Rena’s
trembling hands capped her ears, and her eyes squinted as she flinched with
pain. It was in that moment when she had decided—it was time to leave; however,
a similar overwhelming urge enticed her just as it had on the school’s front
steps: whether Ms. Biddock would apologize.

With
eyes half-closed, Rena moved through the vigorous winds, and victoriously
achieved the course that would conduct to her desired direction by way of the
light glaring through the frosted glass atop the office entryway. She extended
her arms outward and expressed perseverance, striving for Ms. Biddock’s door,
and seized hold of the doorknob.

She
triumphed in achieving her arduous grasp.

With
tremoring hands and all her weight—all ninety pounds, Rena pushed upon the
door, until there was an opportunity; little by little it opened; she persisted
her fight against the storm, but she wasn’t strong enough; the winds on the
other side were as vigorous, prompting her strength to weaken. The slight
access she had obtained—closed; nonetheless, she refused to give up, and shoved
again upon that office door, hard, and then even harder. It was surely opening,
slightly, and more, and then more; she hurriedly stuck her foot inside,
wiggling within the snug opening; then instantly, she was intrigued by the
ceiling turned open sky of stupendous swirling clouds, the roaring of deep
rumbles of thunder, and bursts of flashes of lightning!

She
dominated the rattling door with one hand while the other kept back her
‘tangled hair in the wind’ away from her face. Then, staring at her was a woman
with piercing, glowing green eyes, which Rena had imagined, derived from the
flashes of lightning.

“Ms.
… Biddock?” she questioned aloud over twisting winds.

Coolly,
Ms. Biddock turned away. She held out her arms under the blustery sky, aiming
her gold, etched wand, as lightning strikes soared out of its wooden tip.

Rena
distinguished one of the letters carved into the wand—the letter M; afterward,
she was drawn to an outlandish desk, covered by an old, green leather-bound
book, with bright lights beaming out of its oversized pages.

Ms.
Biddock lowered her arms; her black layered gown waved simultaneously with her
loose hair blowing wildly.

“Didn’t
I tell you to leave!” she yelled.
